Black Velvet - revell 49 merc

49 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Here is another 49 merc from me.

I started this one a few months ago and I'm actually happy with how it turned out.

There are a few slight mods/alterations to this one.

mods: removed "b" pillar, rain gutter, upper door frame, molded/smoothed the rear fender skirts, parts box wheels, dual frenched atennae, full aluminum exhaust and mufflers (scratch built from manifolds back), added "porthole" vents on the hood, 12 volt battery (parts box), carb linkage, fatkidd wired distributor, detail masters battery terminals, crazyjim caddy tail lights, scale dreams battery cables, silver thread used for "piping" on the seats, grey flocking, fuel lines

Interior: custom mixed 2 tone purple

Exterior: H.O.K. Black base coat with H.O.K. Passion Purple Pearl and Blue/purple holographic micro flake was dusted over the whole car (hard to pick up in photographs).

Enough of me babbling...on with the pics.

thanks guys. several hours were spent wet sanding the primer, base coat, and pretty much every step along the way.

And believe it or not, I did not polish this out.

I'm not a fan of the Mercs but that is absolutely beautiful. I especially like the port holes on the hood. Great job.

everyone else, thanks so much.

Doc, I'll try and put a "how to" together next week. I'm trying to get one more model done for a contest this weekend. I don't see it happening, but I'm going to try.
